LONGER HIRES and everything else we offer!

We have been trading for over 25 years on this section of the river and have recently moved some activity from the lovely World Famous Trout Inn, where we have hire boats, to our own site at Brandy Island, Buscot.聽 In the drop down menus above are details of our holiday and weekend boats including prices and lay outs. We offer hourly & half day and day boat hires from The Trout Inn on weekends and Bank Holidays and聽 at other times with a reservation. (Weather permitting!) Additionally most holiday and short break hires depart from The Trout.

Where can you go?

We are located at the Head of The Thames so you can hire a boat to cruise the local upper reaches in the Scenic Cotswold and The Thames valley through Southern Oxfordshire,聽 including the Historic City of Oxford and the Market Town of Abindgdon. 聽 Alternatively for longer hires聽 cruise the full length of the Non Tidal River Thames.

BUSCOT LOCK

The World Famous Trout Inn – Lechlade

Has a riverside garden from where the boats depart and in the summer a large marquee is available for shelter.聽 This, along with the Creel bar, which is a garden bar separate from the main building, can be booked for your wedding, party or business function. During the winter months there is a roaring log fire in the main bar, which has ancient wooden beams and some stone floors. Not a fast food or gastro pub, just a family run country inn with a good range of real ales, ciders wines and spirits, all kept in a fine condition and run with panache by Penny and her wonderful team.
